...with a banjo, luckily. FC Sheriff Tiraspol provided Spurs biggest challenge so far in the Europa League and yet not being brilliant they came away with another win.
...silent. In the search for a new PC the Cooler Master Silencio 650 case stood out as the perfect solution for a dual boot Ubuntu/Windows system but of course the best laid plans.
...burnt Villa to the ground. Another team in claret and blue set up to stifle Spurs, it wasn't looking good and I was dreading the thought of drawing Burnley in the Cup. Then up stepped Andros Townsend.
...bound. Be careful what you wish for. This could get embarrassing in the jungle. As England beat Poland to go to the World Cup and mask what has gone before and optimism raises it's ugly head again.
...England. As they finally beat some country that isn't called Moldova or San Marino in their World Cup qualifying group. Hang your heads in shame Montenegro.
...at the Lane. I just didn't think it was going to quite happen this way, as Spurs carried on as they left off playing wise in Europe, with an awful display, losing 3-0 to West Ham.
...Russia. A strong Spurs XI didn't exact;y set the world alight in beating Anzhi Makhachkala two nil in the Europa League.
...not. It shows how far British cycling has come over the last few years that coming away from the 2013 UCI Road World Championships with one medal was a great disappointment.
...North London. When Jose is trying to hide his fear it brings out every trait that makes loathing him so easy. Mourinho did his best to deflect attention away from his and his players faults after a one all draw with Spurs.
...war einfach zu gut. Sir Bradley Wiggins could do no more in his attempt to win the World Championships Time Trial. Tony Martin was just on another level.
..not bad after all. Away trip in the League Cup in between league and European games could have seen Spurs slack off but 4-0 victory over Aston Villa was the response.
...now. Last year a victory saw Jonathan Tiernan-Locke get a big move to Sky this year it saw Sir Bradley Wiggins put a little gloss on what has been an otherwise “after the lord mayor's show” season.
...was it? The commentator stated near the end that neither Spurs nor Cardiff deserved to lose. In the real world it would have been a travesty if Spurs hadn't found that winning goal.
...Europa League tour. Spurs at it again, a sort of lacklustre dropping down to the oppositions level as they put three past Tromso in the opening Europa League group game.
...the hole. Gylfi Sigurdsson scored the two goals against Norwich City but it was new boy Christian Eriksen playing the number 10 role who took the eye in a dominant display.
